Compassionate Ministries

(Life to the Full.... John 10:10)

Mission

COMPASSIONATE MINISTRIES exists to love people into fullness of life so that each one of us would experience change, new beginnings and opportunities to come to a place of meaningful and lasting hope, perhaps for the very first time.

Jesus said that He came “that we may have life and have it to the full” (John 10:10).

We believe this abundant life is found in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ who loves each one of us and desires only the best for us; however, we know that we live in a world that is broken and imperfect, and life can present us with many challenges.

God knows about and cares for your struggles, and at Centre Street Church we would like to help you explore opportunities for life change or something different that God may be leading you to pursue in order to discover the ‘life to the full’ that He desires for you!

We would love to meet with you to provide encouragement and prayer support and see how we can best help you with practical, spiritual and emotional needs.

 

 

JOURNEY WITH US

 The following is a journey we would love to invite you into to meet practical life needs and to walk with you towards life change:

 

 

FIRST STEPS

We are excited to invite you to an initial appointment to discuss an emergency need and to hear your story and to see how we can help.

We recognize that sometimes we have little control over the difficulties we face and at other times we have made choices that make it hard to be where we would like to be in our lives.

No matter the reason – please come and see us!

‘First Steps’ appointments are available Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Please call 403.293.3900 to book an appointment.

 

 

LIFE BUDGET

For those who are interested in partnering with us in an ongoing way to address life needs and areas of change, we would like to meet with you to have a ‘Life Budget’ interview where we can look at various important areas of your life, including financial, physical, relational and spiritual aspects.

Through this process we will be able to identify opportunities and services for life change that can help move you towards “life to the full”.

‘Life Budget’ appointments are available on Tuesdays.

Please call 403.293.3900 to book an appointment.
